With a huge, Pacific Northwest hop aroma & character upfront, Storm King subsides into massive, roast malt complexity. More flavor than mere words can adequately describe. Rich and substantial, it will warm your heart.

What a great beer to celebrate my 1.500th rating. Thanks to Jeppe (BierKönig) for sharing this one with me. It pours black and has a fine brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of smoke and coffee. And the flavor is sweet too with notes of smoke and coffee before the sweetness gives way to a great bitter end. A fantastic flavor in a fantastic beer with a great body. This is the best beer I've tasted so far - and comes very close to 5.0.

oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2007
Bottled (2004 vintage). Very dark brown/close to black colour, small brown head, that disappears fast. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, slightly hoppy and caramellish. Flavour is roasted malts, hops, some coffee and wood. The hoppyness disturbs me a bit, otherwise it’s a very nice and wellbalanced impy stout.

madmitch76 (16111) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2010
17th September 2008. Opaque black stout. Smooth silky start - good RIS palate. However hops bloom quickly and dominate through to the finish. Not bad but over hoppy for an RIS!

Black color; generous brownish head. Wonderful aroma, perfectly mixing the roasted malts, cream, hops, yeast, roasted nuts, cookies, cardboard. Powerful body, but the mouthfeel is cut by the presence of heavily roasted malts; very strong flavor of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, a bit peppery; even in this shrine of roastiness the hops manage to be noticed; there is also some liquorice, light tar, minimal alcohol perception, bitter oranges tongue pricking; moderate sugar. Strong bitterness in the end, with the powerful coffee and roasted malt in evidence but not excessive. Lovely.

Black color; generous, frothy head. It has a nice aroma of hops and black malt; light soap and cheese too; dust and pepper. Strong body and strong flavor; roasted malt, mainly, with pure chocolate, and a lot of hops. Always a beautiful brew.

Black color; big creamy, beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, hops, a bit cheesy, very light alcohol and wet cardboard; not strong but quite articulated. Good body strength, smooth mouthfeel, with an immediate alcohol kick; good mix of chocolate flavor, roasted malt and caramel; strong bitterness, both from hops and the roasted malt. Very powerful beer, but well balanced, and with some complex edge; excellent.

Dark brown color. Very interesting aroma (not explosive), very good mix of liquorice, malt, caramel, roasted malt, hop. Similar taste, powerful but IMO also harmonious. Strong final. Thanks Philippe (Bov) for sharing this bottle.
